Hard to believe it’s been a year since Season 9 of Married at First Sight wrapped. If you haven’t seen it or aren’t fresh on the details, I highly recommend a binge. If I had to pick one word to describe Season 9? Mayhem. Absolute mayhem. From the secret life of Matt Gwynne to the virginity obsessed Iris Caldwell. Let’s also not forget the angry, but horny, but not horny, and now she’s sad, wait is she mad again, roller coaster of Elizabeth Bice. But through it all there was one steady guiding force. None other than Gregory Okotie and Deonna McNeill.
Deonna and Greg are truly too pure to capture in words. They’re the kind of realistic true love you don’t even mind watching. Even when all you really want is a moment like Matt catching a fly in that constantly gaping mouth of his. Seriously. That guy is so odd and I still can’t believe how long Amber Bowles stuck around for it. At the season reunion Deonna and Greg announced they were expecting…a new niece or nephew. Now they have an even bigger announcement!
Few franchises have captured my heart in the way that Real Housewives of Potomac has. While the first season left many confused about the point of the show, season 2 was some of the finest housewives content we’ve seen in a long time.
This season is no exception. Other franchises get caught up in beating the same storyline over and over for an entire season. Where RHOP gets it right is that they move from argument to argument seamlessly. The show is always giving us new content to look forward to along with breakout stars. Gizelle Bryant is a messy but lovable friend. Candiace Dillard is the unchallenged villain. Karen Huger has a knack for both inserting herself in drama while staying out of it. And let us not forget her epic press conference without press. Truly a moment of reality TV gold.
Anyone else still spinning about Denise Richards leaving Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Maybe it was inevitable, but still, the entire season was built on her back and the alleged affair with Brandi Glanville. So, where do they go from here? Next season, will it be like Denise never happened? Probably, if Lisa Rinna has it her way.
The cast of RHOBH needs to change. Like a Real Housewives of Orange County-level shake up. Teddi Mellencamp,Kyle Richards, Erika Jayne, and Lipsa should take a breather. They gave us nothing for the third season in a row. Shouldn’t that be grounds for dismissal? Instead of quitting, if Denise gave it one more go, I really think Bravo would have blessed her with a redemption arc. But we’re saying goodbye to her and Big D*ck Aaron Phypers.(That name works on two levels here).
It’s that time of year again! The sun sets earlier, kids are back in school, and NeNe Leakes has yet to begin filming Real Housewives of Atlanta. Oh woe is NeNe, what could it be this time? Contract negotiations? Nobody likes her? Discrimination lawsuit? NeNe historically likes to make sure everyone knows she is the head number one OG and no one compares, or will ever compare to her legacy. Too bad she treats people so poorly they hate filming with her and doesn’t limit her lack of people-skills to the cast.
Production began filming Season 12 sans NeNe. She wasn’t in the first few episodes and I’m not entirely sure she was missed by too many. It was nice not to be inundated with NeNe’s perpetual sour attitude and disdain towards her fellow castmates. But, she did come back and went on an apology tour, in hopes that someone will agree to shoot scenes with her once again. Now, right on schedule, the rumor mill is humming about NeNe’s peach. Will she return to RHOA? Is she involved with a discrimination case against Bravo? Is there anything NeNe won’t do to remain relevant?
Well, Dorit Kemsley and husband PK Kemsley are on the
lam move once again. The Real Housewives of Encino Beverly Hills couple have surprisingly listed their home for sale, after living in it for only one year. Viewers might remember the sketchy details surrounding the “purchase” of the home in August 2019. Amid a plethora of legal and financial issues, Dorit and PK moved to the “trendy farmhouse” just steps away from other Encino denizen, Kyle Richards.
This season, we saw Dorit and PK’s efforts in home renovations. Their quest to make the new Encino property their “forever home”, a place where Jaggy and little Phoenix would frolic in a backyard surrounded by idyllic views of the San Fernando Valley… But times, they are a changin’, and I guess “forever” means roughly about 12 months. Dorit and PK are looking for a place to live once again, so it’s fair to ask, will there ever be a Beverly Hills Housewife that actually lives in Beverly Hills?
Viewers of 90 Day Fiance Happily Ever After got to know Jess Caroline as the laid-back, fun loving, Brazilian red-head who started dating Colt Johnson after his divorce from Larissa Dos Santos Lima. Colt seemed smitten at first, and was even discussing baby names with Jess, as mother Debbie Johnson listened on in disgust. Certainly, Jess’s happiness was short lived, and she started to unravel on camera.
Of course, viewers would be curious as to whether this relationship would end in the same manner as Colt and Larissa’s had. After all, there was no clear aggressor and/or victim in that marriage. They simply shifted blame to their former partners.
Few Bravo shows have seen such a fall from grace like Vanderpump Rules. Once the must-watch show of Bravo’s lineup, this past season really jumped the shark. First, we were subjected to a snooze fest of a wedding storyline. Then the firing of Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute at the end of the season really tainted the whole thing.
As for the rest of the cast, fans have long suffered through Katie Maloney sulking on the couch and folding laundry. But at least she’s not involved in the whole mess. Her main storyline for the season was killing her pet lizard. Which I guess in comparison to everything else, is forgivable. But aside from being a cold-blooded lizard-killer, Katie is known as less than enjoyable for fans. I’m obviously putting it nicely.
As much as Twitter is hoping for a Teddi Mellencamp-free season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, it just doesn’t seem to be a likely a scenario. Even though she has zero personal storylines, she does stir the pot and push along other people’s issues.
She also has no problem pushing Kyle Richards‘ agenda forward, much to the annoyance of many fans. Camille Grammer put it best when she tweeted, “Teddi is lucky to be stuffed safely in Kyles back pocket because if she wasn’t she would be crying a different tune. #puppet” Exactly! Her close friendship with Kyle is keeping her on this show. Well, that and her famous last name.
